On our recent The Playlist Podcast, we recently published an interview with “Embrace Of The Serpent” director Ciro Guerra. With this latest edition, I have the honor to announce an exciting new stage in our podcasting ventures at this site. Please welcome film podcast Adjust Your Tracking, the latest addition to what will become a podcast network here at The Playlist. In brief, AYT (along with co-host Joe von Appen) has been going strong for more than four years now, and has been brought in to be one of the pillars of this new network of shows. I’ll be adding more new shows to The Playlist Podcast iTunes feed as we move along, so stay tuned and make sure to subscribe if you haven’t yet.
On this episode of Adjust Your Tracking, Joe and I discuss two new low budget sci-fi theatrical releases, “10 Cloverfield Lane” and “Creative Control.” We look mainly at how the marketing and budget differences between the two films reveal how much franchising and branding are leading the higher profile film, with its would-be connections to 2008’s “Cloverfield” (perhaps to its detriment), while the smaller movie, “Creative Control,” is another feather in the cap of new big player in town, Amazon Studios. But there’s plenty of other topics and films we touch on, especially the great British sci-fi show “Black Mirror,” which Netflix purchased and will release new episodes soon (I hope).
You can stream or download the podcast via the Soundcloud embed below, or subscribe on iTunes. Older episodes of Adjust Your Tracking are archived here. And make sure to read our original Playlist written reviews of both films, linked above in each film’s respective title. Thanks for listening.
